Creating a board for viewing Epics

I have created a custom issue type called 'Epic'. Created multiple Epics with workflow as To Do>In Progress>Done. Have mapped user stories to these epics.


I am able to create  Board for active sprint with user stories and sub tasks. But, I am unable to create aboard which shows Epics and User Stories mapped to those Epics

I would suggest to go to the board configuration and select Swimlanes then pick "Base Swimlanes on" to be on Epics. That will show you the stories and subtasks under Epic swimlanes. 

I would also suggest using the "-" keyboard shortcut to toggle expanding and collapsing the swimlanes for easy view. 

Thanks Peter. It helped...

Sorry but how do you accept it? I've explored the options available but can't find the right one. I've voted though
